June storm brings winter weather to Hawaii mountains

By Star-Advertiser Staff

LAST UPDATED: 09:57 a.m. HST, Jun 05, 2011

Saturday’s storm dropped several inches of snow on Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa, a relatively rare sight in June.

The National Weather Service says there’s even a chance of more snow falling this afternoon and a winter weather advisory is in effect until 6 p.m. today.

The cold air associated with an upper level storm system is still creating instability in the atmosphere and more snow, sleet or freezing rain could affect travel to the summits, forecasters said.

Park rangers cleared the road to the summit this morning and reported up to 8 inches of snow on the road, the weather service said.
